It's all over

Well, rather than leave with a bang or a whimper, my retirement went silently.

It was all very surreal, was in work reimaged my machines, listened to some music, then off for my exit interview and explanation as to my ability to join the Microsoft Alumni network, and Cobra et. al. and done.

My stress hasn't dropped yet, I think because it hasn't yet sunk in. We went to blockbuster last night to get some DVD's to watch and I was thinking we'd need to see them before Sunday night so I could take them back before work on Monday, then caught myself and thought what work?

Anyway as mentioned up early still this morning (asymptomatic insomnia sucks), when will this ever end I wonder? Hopefully not too long in the future.

It's a very strange feeling...

I'll keep you guys posted.

since when do you have asymptomatic insomnia??? You have not mentioned this to me in the office. Julie B.

D00d -- CONGRATS on your [former] career's premature demise! If'n your insomnia doesn't disappear soon, no doubt a couple days' hard labor on the A-K homestead will smoosh it into submission.

When you find yourself not going to bed early (because you have to get up early to go to work), you will find yourself sleeping later.

It will take time for your body to adjust to your new reality. Don't fight it - it will come of its own accord.
